Red Wine and Mushroom Sauce

This is an incredibly scrumptious and easy sauce that is perfect over some type of grilled meat; I served mine over Grilled Lamb Chops, but I think it might be even better on a ribeye or filet mignon. Regardless, you will want to eat this by the forkful. This was also part of the tasty and cost-effective Sam's Club Dinner

Heat the olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add the mushrooms (more or less to taste, I like lots), and cook for about 5 minutes.
Pour in the wine, letting it reduce for about 5 more minutes.
Stir in the beef broth, letting it reduce a few minutes more.  Whisk together 1 tablespoon of corn starch and 1/4 cup water in a separate bowl. Add it to the mushroom mixture, stirring thoroughly, allowing the sauce to thicken. Add more corn starch or beef broth to reach the desired thickness (I might have done a lot of eye balling here). Serve over freshly grilled or roasted red meat. Doesn't it look rich and elegant?  I just love it.
